John Carter Brown Library - Cuba Collection

Cuba was the first Caribbean island to have a press, begun in 1722 by Flemish merchant Carlos Habré of Ghent. Habré and his successor, Francisco José de Paula, printed only intermittently, and it was not until 1757 that the press began to function more regularly. Of the 29 items in this collection (as of 2012), fully half are only known copies found nowhere else in the world.
